Those darn rockn roller people never learn...

John Popper Arrested in Washington
Wednesday, March 7, 2007 11:45 PM EST
The Associated Press
By NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Blues Traveler singer and harmonica player John Popper was arrested after the vehicle he was riding in was clocked going 111 mph, the Washington State Patrol said Wednesday.

Popper, 39, was arrested Tuesday afternoon on Interstate 90 near the Spokane/Lincoln county line, the Washington State Patrol said.

Inside the black Mercedes SUV, officers found a cache of weapons and a small amount of marijuana, the Patrol said. A police dog searched the vehicle, finding numerous hidden compartments containing four rifles, nine handguns and a switchblade knife. Authorities also found a Taser and night vision goggles. The vehicle was seized.

Popper, who lives in Snohomish, Wash., is the owner of the vehicle, which was being driven by Brian Gourgeois, 34, of Austin, Texas, said state patrol Trooper Jeff Sevigney. The vehicle also had flashing emergency headlights, a siren and a public address system, the Patrol said.

"Popper indicated to troopers that he had installed these items in his vehicle because (in the event of a natural disaster) he didn't want to be left behind," the Patrol said in a news release. He also told officers he collected weapons, the Patrol said.

Not sure if it was the Harp or the Heart that bring you back, but AAA will most likely cancel his insurance.

He used to live in Quakertown, PA many years back. At that time he kept pit bulls and a friend of mine worked at the area vet. She was a huge fan (this was about the time of the Horde Tours with Neil). Anyhow, during one of their tours she ended up babysitting his dogs at his place. He kept quite an arsenal on his grounds according to her...

WOW! Really? That's where I am right now. I hope I don't offend anyone but why would you live HERE on purpose? No wonder he is apparantly nuts.

nah. Is that the farmers/flea type market they told me about? Gotta say there's NOTHING here. Went to New Hope on suggestion tonight. Nice little town but couldn't drink too much, driving and all. All I know is I am looking forward to going home!

a month later reply... oh well...forgot about this one..

but yeah its the farmer's market that is apparently owned by a convicted sex offender. Now if you want the true Pennsyltucky experience head down 663 to Gilbertsville and Zern's. Every Saturday they have a livestock auction. You can count the teeth on 9 fingers.

How the heck do you end up in Quakertown, PA from Alaska...

I've actually been trying to plan a vacation up there... but its pretty difficult to find a package that combines camping and more adventurous travels with site-seeing type stuff in the more civilized parts.

I went to a training course on a patient monitoring system we have in our ICU. I work at a hospital on medical equipment.

Why Alaska trip? Just want to see it? It's beautiful up here but they really gouge the tourists in the summer unfortunately. Yeah all those cruise ships and packages are geared towards shuttling you to all their owned places ( $ )

Charlton Heston is in the last stages of Alzheimer's from the last I heard maybe one year ago.

Popper doesn't surprise me either.

None other than David Crosby worships the US Gov't model 1911/A1 semi-automatic pistol. He has been arrested four times for carrying his favorite piece of .45 caliber military hardware without a permit.

Spencer Dryden died about 2 years ago. His former band mates congregated on KPFA with David Gans. The audience heard that the Airplane's drummer packed a .44 magnum just like Dirty Harry. The bigger the better they said.

Another one of his buddies bragged that he still owns a war surplus .30 caliber M-1 carbine (SLA Rifle) with a banana clip, Never mind a California law that banned so called assault rifles in 1989. Get caught with original US army surplus 15 or 30 round magazines in California - and go to jail!

Open your Grateful Dead family album and see John Perry Barlow flashing his double barrel shotgun in your face. A drunken Grace Slick fired 12 guage bird shot at her old man in the 90s too.

Some of those Allman Bros have CCW permits in Florida according to a newspaper, which obtained a list of celebrities who pack heat down there.

Now get over the idea that these LIBERAL rock musicians and movie stars don't own guns; because many do despite all of their self-righteous statements about it. An entire book (The Gun Grabbers by Alan Gottlieb) is dedicated to outting armed celebrity anti-Second Amendment hypocrites...

There's a picture of PigPen on the back of a horse--at Mickey's ranch I believe--with a holster & pistol strapped on.

Also---today's the 34 year anniversary of Pig's untimely death in '73. Find a fav Pig tune or fav He's Gone or Black Peter & pay tribute.

See, it's not just black athletes....white musicians are also often flawed....too much money, too much time...too few brain cells!

It's the 1% in ANY profession. If the cameras followed Phys.Ed. teachers, we'd be shocked at what we'd find, but the cameras follow athletes and celebs.....that's where the REAL news is....puke!

Night-vision goggles? 4 rifles? 9 handguns? A taser? The man is an incredibly talented musician, but this?

Charlton Heston must be very proud.

Maybe he'll play the GO-GO, have a whiskey, a chimicanga, buy a pick-up, a fishing rod and relax, and I thought Midnight Riding Mowers were trouble.

Jimmy Reed or Charlie Musselwhite breakfast.

Charlton heston is dead. On old friend of mine in NJ used to hang out with the bass player... I think he's dead too. I collect guns but I never take all of them with me when driving over 100 MPH.

What? Dead guys can't be proud too?
As for firearms, I'm all for them when used properly and safely. Love a day at the range with a .308 or laying waste to suspended watermelons with a .300 WinMag at 500 yards. But like you said, travelling with them while going over 100 MPH AND having a bag of weed in the car does not make my list of smart things to do.
